Nominated for both the Edgar and Anthony Awards, and the winner of the Nero and Macavity Awards, David Morrell gives us this gripping sequel to Murder as a Fine Art. The year is 1855, the Crimean War is raging, and the incompetence of British commanders causes the fall of the current government in Britain. As the Empire teeters, prominent members of British society are being murdered by a mysterious killer. Into this crisis steps opium-eater Thomas De Quincey, one of the most notorious and brilliant personalities of Victorian England. Along with his irrepressible daughter Emily and friends at Scotland Yard, De Quincey confronts an adversary whose ultimate target seems to be Victoria herself.

"Fans of sophisticated historicals will embrace Macavity Award–winner Morrell's second suspense novel featuring Thomas De Quincey and his grown daughter Emily.... Convincing period detail complements the fascinating story line."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Ripping good fun at every delicious twist and turn.... De Quincey makes for an offbeat but entirely credible protagonist in the Sherlock Holmes mold.... It's a potent formula, with genuine thrills and a satisfying mystery leavened with well-observed and meticulously researched details of Victorian life and attitudes."—Kirkus Reviews
